LibriVox recording of Geography and Plays, by Gertrude Stein. Geography and Plays is a 1922 collection of Gertrude Stein's "word portraits," or stream-of-consciousness writings. These stream-of-consciousness experiments, rhythmical essays or "portraits", were designed to evoke "the excitingness of pure being" and can be seen as literature's answer to Cubism, plasticity, and collage.

As the Stillstream featured artist for May 2012, I was given the opportunity to do a live broadcast. This was not practical for me (though it would have been fun). So instead I put together this set, which provided the opportunity to feature examples of the two main "flavors" of my recent electronic work: live/analog/improvised and computer/digital/composed, along with a more conventional piece from a long time ago. This set was originally broadcast on Stillstream.com on Sunday, May... Topic: mysterybear drone stillstream

Synopsis: Formed in 1969, Electronic Music Studios (EMS) quickly became innovators for the recording, production and advancement of electronic music.

LibriVox recording of Triplanetary, by “Doc” E.E. Smith. Read by Mark F. Smith. “Doc” E.E. Smith pretty much invented the space opera genre, and Triplanetary is a good and well-known example.

Having earned a PhD in chemical engineering, it’s understandable that the heroes of Smith’s story are all scientists. He didn’t want to be constrained by the limits of known science, however, so in... favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 6 reviews ) Topics: librivox, literature, audiobook, science fiction, Triplanetary, E.E.
